It shouldn’t be called a fort as the fort is just around 100m circumference and just about 4-5 tall. The museums are just rooms with an exhibit of old photographs. The only decent room housed a few ship models from the Spanish colonial era. If...More

Great place to learn about the history of he Philippines and Cebu. One hour should be enough to learn abt the history as well as sight seeing in the fort. Tour is no necessary but optional.

It's worth a visit here if you're in the area, its cheap to get in but there's not much to see - just the building itself, walking along the walls, and a small exhibition.

We walked by the fort around 4:30pm and decided to check it out. We were told that we were too late for a guided tour so we roamed the whole area on our own. The photo gallery housing old pictures of Cebu was interesting, but...More
